    I am having trouble connecting to Google Play. I don't know if this is at all related to the Wifi connection, but it can never establish a reliable connection to the server. I have a Hyundai A7ART.

    Hello - we have an iDream Android tablet. It connecst to other wifi's but not our own. Ive tried the things above by changing the channels and also the security (WPA and WPA2) but it's still displaying 'saved/secure/connecting' but doesnt actually connect. Ive also restarted the tablet and router many times, still nothing. Any ideas?
    Much appreciated.
    Thank you.

    If all your other WiFi is working OK the fastest solition would be to delete the Google account, restart and add it nack in again. This is probably not really a WiFi issue as far as I can tell.

    Welcome to the forum

    Find the connection and tap it, tell it to delete/forget. Restart the find it and add it back. If it works elsewhere and that doesn't work you may need to consider replacing the router or at least check for a firmware update.

    I've spent days searching for answers for my connection problem, including all of the tips in this forum and many others.
    I tried everything...and I do mean everything. In the end, it turns out to be the simplest of fixes.
    I was getting connection to my wireless router but NO Internet connection. I could PING from my router back to my tablet successfully.
    But always got the status of "Service State - Out of Service".
    Wireless icon would go to Blue when connection was made but after a few seconds, back to gray.
    I stumbled on the solution when I finally noticed that the DATE on my tablet had somehow reset back to January 2010. No idea what caused it but when I reset the Date and Time manually on my tablet, everything went back to normal.
    Sometimes it's the simplest and right IN YOUR FACE things that cause the most grief.
    Hope this helps someone else out there who like me, was just about to toss my tablet in frustration.
    Good luck.

    P.S.: After thinking more about it, I believe the hard reset of the date may have happened when the tablet was left unplugged for a long period of time and the system died.

    Hi,
    I've an Asus Memo Pad 10.
    I've followed any step described above....
    I still have the same problem: Searching for Wi-Fi networks.....
    What I've done:
    a) I upgrade the router (a NETGEAR DGN2200v3, just updated to the latest official firmware release): nothing...
    b) I've tried to remove wi-fi password : nothing
    c) I've tried several times to make a complete power off/on: nothing
    d) I've tried to make a factory reset: nothing
    e) I've tried other wi-fi: nothing

    Near me I've more wi-fi network, an none is detected.
    The connection worked for few hours, just after out of the box...then what I remember, I'd a "strange" behaviour, the date was "unexpectedly" changed ...
    few minutes later the connection was off....and now it doesn't work....

    There are other options?
    Any way to make a complete "hardware reset" ?
    It's strange because it worked for some times..and after it stopped....:)confused:)

    Any help is appreciated....
    Kind Regards,
    DR

    Hi again DR,

    When I sent you to this thread yesterday, I was hoping you'd find a solution. It's sounding very much like that tablet is defective and you should return it. The fact it worked for a while doesn't mean anything, it's not uncommon for components to fail in the first hours of use. In fact, many manufacturers of quality electronics products used to "burn in" a new computer by running it several hours before shipping it to a customer to eliminate that problem. If it survived the burn in, the odds were pretty good it would last a long time.

    However, if you still want to try a factory reset, click this link to http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/android-tablet-q/62022-how-do-i-factory-reset-my-tablet.html. If there isn't a post for your particular tablet there, try some of the methods for other tablets to see if one works for yours. Can't hurt, might help.

    Good luck!

    Hi,
    I've tried several configurations:
    1: vol down + Power On
    2: vol up + Power On
    3: vol up+vol down + power On

    None gives a result.....just with the first one I saw the date defined to 1/1/1970....but the wireless is still not working....
    So I think that my last issue is to replace it or do service call...
    I'll update my history asap.
    Kind Regards,
    DR

    My apologies but I'm new here in a desperate attempt to fix my son's Kurio7 wifi issues. It keep resetting to "off" every time I try to put the wifi "on". I have tried factory reset etc and nothing works but all other devices in the house are connected to the wifi and working just fine. Can anyone help?

    Welcome to the forum

    I would see if it turns on outside the range of your WiFi. Do you have any task killers running and/or have you disabled any apps?
